Portugal car sales data

Portugal-car-sales-statisticsHere you will find annual car sales figures for Portugal. These statistics are Total Market Volumes, which include passenger cars as well as light commercial vehicles (LCVs).

Since the late 1990s, the Portuguese car market has fluctuated between 110.000 and 410.000 annual sales. From a peak of just over 410.000 sales in 2000, the market collapsed to a low of just under 260.000 sales three years later. From 2004 to 2008 sales were relatively stabe, but 2009 was another horror year with sales down by a quarter. 2010 offered a short relief with sales back up to the level from the years before, but then plummeted by 58% in two years time to a new low of just over 110.000 sales, similar to the figure of 1985. From that low of 2012, the market has recovered with double digit sales growth in 4 consecutive years. In the late 1990s, LCV sales made up more than 30% of total car sales in Portugal. This share has been in a slow but steady decline, averaging 25% from 2000 to 2010 and just over 15% from 2011 to 2016. In 2012 LCV volume was just 10,5% of its peak in 2000, but has doubled again since.
